We were fully aware that hostels in uyuni were going to be basic however we were not prepared for piedra blanca. Upon arriving from our night bus at 6am we were told we weren't allowed into the hostel until 10am and had to find a cafe after leaving our bags there. Staff were not friendly but breakfast was slightly better... More

We stayed here after doing the salar de uyuni trip as it was recommended in our South America lonely planet travel guide. We wouldn't recommend it. The showers were hot and powerful which was nice as the rest of the hostel was freezing. The flooring was very unstable and unsafe. The staff were not very welcoming and here are limits... More

We were due to arrive at 4 am from an overnight bus ride but our bus broke down and we didn't arrive until 7am. We didn't know what to expect once we arrived nor what to do at that early hour. This was our first trip to Uyuni. My cousin and her husband manage this hostel and we rang to... More

After a late nightbus, this place was the only one to let us in at 4 am without a reservation. 👍 This place is perfect for a one night stay, or if you are traveling on a budget. The beds looks like they'll give you bed bugs, but we didn't have any problems, except one mouse. Place doesn't look very... More

It's likely that you'll stay one night in Uyuni after your salt flats tour, and this hostel absolutely did the trick for us. Nothing fancy, certainly not the best hostel we've stayed in but it was perfect for one night. the wifi was bearable, probably quite good compared to the rest of Bolivia, and the breakfast was good too! Friendly... More

Not as scary as I expected based on previous reviews. Comfy bed. No heating so prepare to be a bit cold. Definitely not convenient if you’re on a top bunk since there is only 1 ladder for the whole dorm. There is hot water but no water pressure. Breakfast was ok. Internet barely worked. Friendly staff.

This is a great hostel! Great and conscientious staff, always at the front desk, which makes security not a problem. Nice breakfast, comfortable beds. There are cheaper options in Uyuni, but this has the best value for money, since most of the cheaper ones are not as clean and don't include breakfast. They lent me the dinosaur for the Salar...

The hostel is very well located in the center of Uyuni and close to the bus station, so we could easily walk to the hostel, even with the backpackers. The staff was very nice and helped us with information regarding the city, agencies to do the salar trip and places to eat. The room was comfortable and warm, which is... More

enjoyed my stay in this hostel. It is close to the bus terminal and easy to find. Location could not be better. The lady at the reception was very nice and knew all the answers to my questions. She even speaks good English. Wifi was working good in the common areas, but not in the rooms. They have a nice... More

I was overall disappointed. The staff are okay and friendly enough and did try and help me out with my main issue about the hostel, but in the end that wasn't enough and I decided to switch hostels right at the end of the night, as I couldn't face sleeping there. The main issue being the top bunks on offer.... More
